“A Bottle in the Gaza Sea” Movie Screening

The Manchester Library will screen, “A Bottle in the Gaza Sea” on Wednesday, September 18, at 12:00 noon, 3:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 pm. See this popular foreign drama film on a large screen without paying the admission fee of a movie theater! 

17-year-old Tal has emigrated from France to Jerusalem with her family. She writes a letter expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. She slips the letter into a bottle, and her brother throws it into the sea near Gaza, where he is carrying out his military service. A few weeks later, Tal receives an e-mail response from a mysterious “Gazaman,” a young Palestinian named Naim. Thus begins a turbulent but tender long-distance friendship between two young people that are separated by a history they are trying both to understand and change.

 

The dialogue is in French, Arabic, and Hebrew with English subtitles and is 99 minutes long. It is part of the library’s monthly Foreign/Independent Film Series.  Registration is not required. This program is open all ages although it is geared toward adults.

The Manchester Branch of the Ocean County Library is located at 21 Colonial Drive in Manchester Township. For more information call 732.657.7600 or go online to http://www.theoceancountylibrary.org.
